This show has a few highlights. The opening jam just cooks. I was unsure of how the DJ Logic thing would mesh, but this opener proved it could work well. Shakedown rocks as well. The Maggie's Farm is the song at it's finest with Johnnie Johnson. Eyes of the World is a fine finish. I remember the break seemed to be like only 10 minutes.
The Set two opener is also intense. The victim or the crime is almost evil sounding, with a powerful bass segment from wasserman to close. Minglewood is Ratdog at it's bluesy best. Mark's solos are particularly good. I thought Tanquerey was just inappropriate to break up Dark Star, but hey, it's Dark Star! I'll take what I can get. I enjoyed Ashes and Glass, but the China Rider late in the show was too much to believe. I recommend this show, and I give it 4 stars. I'd give it 5 if the Dark Star weren't interrupted by the Tanquerey.
EDIT: From a later perspective, Rooster and Especially Minglewood are hot. I've never seen a more rockin Minglewood ever.
